Email Office 365

Of­fice365 Web App al­lows you to read and send emails, or­gan­ize con­tacts, cre­ate tasks, and man­age your cal­en­dar. Moreover, you can set up out-of-of­fice no­ti­fic­a­tions as well as email for­ward­ing.

Email Ad­dresses for WU stu­dents

You will re­ceive a name-­based ad­dress in the format first­name.sur­ that will serve as your primary email ad­dress. If this ad­dress is already taken, a num­ber will be ad­ded to your sur­name. In ad­di­tion to that, you have a stand­ard email ad­dress cre­ated auto­mat­ic­ally in the format "h+stu­dent-ID-num­ber­" (e.g.

Please note: Stu­dents who en­rolled be­fore Janu­ary 1, 2013 and have not yet been migrated to Of­fice 365 do not have a name-­based ad­dress and can there­fore only be reached at "h+stu­dent-ID-num­ber­". The migra­tion can be per­formed by stu­dents them­selves in the Con­trolpanel ap­plic­a­tion un­der > My Email > Of­fice 365 Migra­tion.
